Presentation on the Third Pennsylvania Bird Atlas
December 20, 2023 at 6:00 pm
On December 20, 2023 the Tiadaghton Audubon will host a presentation from a volunteer from Hawk Mountain on the Third Pennsylvania Bird Atlas at 6PM in the Board room/ Old Music Room in the Wellsboro Administration Building across for Wellsboro High School.
The purpose of this meeting is to inform potential volunteers of the who, what, where and why for the Pennsylvania Bird Atlas (PBA3).
Pennsylvania’s Bird Atlas (PBA3) is a five year statewide inventory of birds breeding and overwintering in the state. The PBA3 begins January 1, 2024, and will run through early 2029. This will be PA’s 3rd atlas, following atlases conducted in the 1980s and early 2000s. The PBA3 will rely on thousands of volunteers to document species and breeding behaviors across the state. The results of the PBA3 will help detect population and distributional changes for the birds of PA – information that is critical for designating species of conservation concern and informing land management and protection. This presentation will outline why we conduct atlases, how the PBA3 will work, and how anyone can participate.
